On this week's Phil Naessens Show, even the ever naysayer Phil has to admit that the Thunder are turning things around with five (and now six) consecutive wins under their belts. What are the biggest reasons for OKC's success? We walk through those, and then consider the Thunder's chances against the Cavaliers tonight. On that latter note, we recorded this show yesterday with the expectation that, based on ESPN reports, Kyrie Irving would be playing tonight. But Kyrie actually ended up tweeting during our recording session that he was not yet activated, so take that analysis with proper measure. Thanks, ESPN!

From Phil:

On this edition of the Phil Naessens Show Welcome to Loud City Managing Editor J.A. Sherman joins Phil to discuss why the Oklahoma City Thunder have seemingly turned the corner, preview Thursday’s game with the Cleveland Cavs and if the NBA Western Conference is still better than the Eastern Conference. Peachtree Hoops managing Editor Kris Willis joins Phil to discuss the Atlanta Hawks and The Sports Goons Jameyan Smith joins Phil and the guys unveil their all NBA "dark Alley" team and much more NBA talk on NBA Thursday!
